Suge Knight Catches Beat Down
By Sentinel News Service
Published February 19, 2009

TMZ.com is reporting that Marion "Suge" Knight was beaten up early Monday morning in Scottsdale, Ariz., and the alleged assailant is affiliated with pop star Akon.

According to the Web site, Knight was attending the 944 Magazine All-Star Weekend wrap-up celebration at the W Hotel hosted by Akon. Cops say they were called to the scene by hotel security who said a fight seemed likely to jump off between two groups in the VIP section.

According to the Scottsdale PD Web site, cops arrived to see a man punch Suge "two times in the head." Officers said they used tasers to "quell the fight." Suge was transported to a local hospital and treated for facial injuries.

The suspect, Robert Carnes Jr., was charged with one count of felony aggravated assault. It was ruled a felony "due to the severity of the victim's injuries." Another man was also arrested and charged with one count of misdemeanor disorderly conduct.

Police initially said that Carnes was Akon's business manager. But the singer's publicist released the following statement in response: "He is not Akon's business manager, David Bolno is. He is with Akon's camp."

  In May, Knight was knocked out at LA's Shag nightclub by a barber from South Central.
